KASARA is our Hallberg Rassy 36, a very comfortable sturdy cruising sailing yacht. Built in 1994 in Sweden, and purchased by us in 2016, she has been well maintained throughout her "life" and has now been professionally "coded" for safety and for commercial use.

Kasara belongs to Pete ("The Pirate") & Jan Halliday who live, work & play in Hamble, centre of UK sailing, adjacent to the Solent..

PETE HALLIDAY is a qualified Yacht Master Offshore, Commercially Endorsed Skipper and RYA Cruising Instructor (Sail), able to run practical RYA Competent Crew and Day Skipper courses. Often Known as "The Pirate" Pete will get you to the standard of skippering and chartering your own yacht safely in a fun and relaxed way.

JAN HALLIDAY  enjoys shopping, travelling, partying and sailing in mild (preferably sunny) conditions......Know anyone else like this? ......

and as well as practicing as a Humanist Celebrant

is also training towards Day Skipper.

2018 saw Kasara and her trusty crew adventuring for 3 months to The West Country, The Scilly Isles, South Brittany as far as La Rochelle, North Brittany and back via the Channel Islands on an extended shake down cruise.

Now in conjunction with Hamble Point Yacht Charters and Hamble Point Sailing School Kasara is available for charter, tuition and sailing adventures.

Unlike many sailing school boats we do not rely on packing Kasara with people to make our courses or charters work, but are just as happy to welcome couples, families or small groups of 3 or 4 and to create for you a bespoke program, a fun, safe learning experience, much as you would want when you buy or charter a boat of your own.

Live, Learn, Sail
